Two New York Knicks undergo surgery

Jalen Brunson will begin this New York Knicks offseason with a procedure on his claw.

The Knicks announced Wednesday morning that the former Villanova Wildcat underwent successful surgery on his left hand and will be re-evaluated in six to eight weeks. Fellow New Yorker Bojan Bogdanovic also underwent a similar procedure on his left wrist and will also need the same recovery period.

Brunson and Bogdanovic were part of the Knicks’ injury epidemic that ate up several key members of the rotation during the team’s successful season.

Starter Brunson was perhaps the final heartbreaking blow to the campaign, leaving what became the Knicks’ season finale Sunday against the Indiana Pacers with a broken hand that took him out of a second-half run. defeat 130-109. Brunson just wrapped up a brilliant second season in Manhattan shouldering most of the load amid the loss of key pieces in Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson. The point guard averaged 28.7 points and 6.7 assists, the best of his career, and earned his first invitation to the All-Star Game.

Bogdanovic, who came over from Detroit in a trade deadline deal, injured his wrist during the first-round series against Philadelphia.
